Natalie Ai Kamauu brings a voice that fills the PBS Hawaii studio. Joined by her
husband, Iolani Kamauu, on guitar and vocals, and their daughter, Sha-Lei
Kamauu, who accompanies the music with hula, Natalie performs with a passion
that comes from the origins of the songs she sings, and the love she has for
Among the songs featured are "Pili Aloha," which connects Natalie to her mother, kumu hula Olana Ai, and "Shower Tree," which was written for Natalie and Iolani's son, Chaz. Sha-Lei joins Natalie and Iolani with hula, including the playful "Hula Tease," and a graceful accompaniment to Natalie and Iolani's performance on "Uhiwai."
Here's a bonus video from this Na Mele of Natalie and Iolani performing "And I Love You So."
